Ferrelle spoke to the students on the issue of domestic violence on both local and a national levels. She thanked the Roses Club for their diligent work at the Next Step Ministries Thrift Store and described how the Roses Club time and talent greatly benefit those affected by domestic violence in Kernersville.

The Roses Club inspired by St. Therese and led by moderator, Dr. Danita Ostasiewski, are a group of BMHS students who focus on random acts of kindness. Members are planning on working at Next Step Ministries on designated club days for the remainder of the school year.
